California Native Plant Guide - from the wildlife's perspective
One of the benefits of planting California natives is the increase in native birds and their food sources. This one-page brochure lists native plants suitable for our area, categorized by their attraction to birds and insects. It also includes a list of deer-resistant (not deer-proof) plants.
Use this guide when preparing your new plants' home in the soil and during the early days and weeks it is first in the ground. We give this flyer out with each plant purchased at the annual plant sale.
